2. Stripping a '90 Plymouth Laser Turbo FWD

Bought the engine donor from ebay for $1000 before I realized I would end up making the Colt project AWD. I drove this car home and the ECU fried the next day, but the engine was in great shape. PA car, very rusty, this one took 4 hours because I took a dinner break.

6. 4g63 longblock assembly
All parts ordered and accounted for. Bagged, tagged and marked with torque specs. Assembly took 2.5 hours... but the 14 hours of prep work, 2 weeks in a machine shop, and wrong-parts-delivered fiascoes straightened out prior to assembly.





5. 4g63 Teardown II
Disassembling the shortblock and reconditioning of the Colt's "new" engine.





7. Removing the Colt's old rear end assembly
There is no engineering problem that time and money can't fix. Changing a FWD econo-box into an AWD sleeper. Removing the 4-lug hubs, drum brakes, rear hubs, crossbars, springs, trunk, gas tank, etc...





4. Tearing down a '90 Turbo 4g63 engine
Decided to rebuild the engine to leave nothing in question.





Making the right one jealous (at 125x)
As I outlined in last month's Colt update video, I have problems with suspension geometry from using the AWD rear that can't easily be solved. I was going to install wheel wells from an AWD Talon to fix the problem, but thanks to the fuel door location differences between both cars, that solution couldn't work. Also, the frame width differences between the cars and variations of how the rear pieces were spot welded together prevented either well from fitting... so I had to work with what I've got. In order to prevent the tires from rubbing against the springs at all time, I had to move the top strut mounts in closer together to match the angle of the AWD rear's lower mounts. I wanted to be able to use the stock AWD rear springs and shocks rather than the Colt parts because the lower mount is bigger than the Colt's stock shock mounts... and also there are more aftermarket parts available for the AWD GSX suspension than for the Colt. Why not make everything fit the way it's supposed to, right? I never would have imagined that this would be as complicated as it was, but the concept was so simple that I had to try. Just because you can upload a 15 minute video doesn't mean you should... but I don't know how else to cover this much ground. This is the most accelerated video I've ever produced. In the course of making this video, I compressed 17.5 hours of footage into 12.5 minutes. Over 2 Terrabytes of raw HD video, a half-Terrabyte of pre-production exports to create a 1.8GB file. This took me 3.5 weeks to finish amidst the trials and tribulations of my busy life, and more than twice as long as the actual job to create the video. It's not perfect, but I hope it's at least entertaining. Perhaps some of you out there with the same problem on your projects might find something in here that you can use. Oh... and when I set out to do this, I had no flippin' idea what I was doing... I just that I knew I couldn't afford to screw it up. It took me $10 worth of steel, a small spool of welding wire, a $28 bottle of Argon/CO2, and the tools you see in the video. I'm really happy with the results.





3. Stripping a AWD Eagle Talon
This car was given to me in trade for fixing someone's car. It had a trashed head and good shortblock, but I wanted the drivetrain. I needed everything. I took it all. I had a spare head and could have just fixed it, but the Colt said "no".





2g GSX How-To: Attempting turbo swap with WTF ending
Okay. Now I've seen it all. There's an old adage that states "if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself". Well, this video both confirms and debunks that theory. A lot of that depends on each person's definition of "done right". You can't do things by-the-book with aftermarket hardware. Sheldon bought this car with a pretty full mod list and it ran great at the time, but by the time we got it to the track, we couldn't beat a 16-second pass. Despite the laundry list of troubleshooting we both attempted to do through tuning and testing, we couldn't determine why it was around 4 seconds slower than it should be running. I started having doubts that a "ported T-28" was what was on the car, and there's no easy way to tell them apart without removing it so we opted to install a 14b... since plenty of people easily run 13's with them. Stick around for the plot twist.

Making The Left One Watch [AppleJuice remix]
Here's what I did with the rear wheel well on the passenger side. It's pretty much the same procedure as the left one, but due to the location of the fuel filler door, the trimming of the wheel well skin had to be done differently. This is a long and arduous task, but I felt it was necessary because I wanted to be able to easily fit standard parts in the rear, and other solutions involved welding things to the shocks to make them fit which complicates service and replacement. Moving both the height and location of the upper strut perch allowed me the clearance I needed between the tire and the springs, while allowing me to use any rear suspension assembly from the AWD '91-94 Mitsubishi Eclipse, Talons or Lasers. I had investigated all other options and found this to be the easiest long-term solution to that problem since I had all the tools necessary to do this. It took me just under a month to do this in what little free time I can muster. Shooting video slowed the project to a snail's pace because I only have the hard drive space to edit an hour and a half at a time and it takes twice as long to edit and export what I've shot. With the project spanning over 30 hours, I had to call professional help on the audio track. The tune is an original piece by RojoDelChocolate, and the samples are from DayjobOrchestra. Two individuals who have kept me highly entertained over the years. Please check them out because they're good people.





Block Preparation Part 2 - 1gina2g Timing Side
RRE Method: http://www.roadraceengineering.com/2g6boltmotorinstall.htm Magnus Method: http://magnusmotorsports.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/02/1gina2g.pdf Technically, I'm doing the Magnus method, but my wiring will be very different. All 1g cars use the same water pump, and naturally they use the same water pump bolts as well. I use the 1g tensioner arm because it clears the water pump without any grinding of either one of those parts. 1g Water Pump MD972052 1g Water Pump Bolts MF140022 MF140026 MF140028 MF140029 MF140238 1g Timing Tensioner Arm MD130032 This 2g timing mount assembly includes a tensioner arm, washer, pivot bolt, idler pulley and bolt.. You won't need the included tensioner arm with my method. It doesn't come with the studs on the top, so you'd need to buy a pair of those. Complete 2g Timing Mount Assembly MD189172 Engine Mount Studs MD184155 x2 Depending on whether you're installing a 1g 6-bolt or a 1g 7-bolt engine block in your 2g chassis, you're going to need the front case and hydraulic tensioner that matches the block you're using. Front Case Assemblies MD129347 (6-bolt straight cut gears) MD175762 (6-bolt helical cut gears) MD327450 (7-bolt helical for 1g block) 1g Hydraulic Tensioner MD164533 6-bolt MD308586 7-bolt 1g Hydraulic Tensioner Bolts MD129350 x2 6-bolt MD190987 x2 7-bolt You can modify a 2g lower timing cover to make it fit, but it won't line up around the bottom of the front case. That's why I use the 1g timing cover, and modify it to fit the 2g middle cover. Since you need metal covers against the block to have something to bolt the plastic parts to, let's start with those. The rear metal cover that bolts to the head is exactly the same part for both 1g and 2g cars. With my method, you need to use the 2g front metal cover in order to line up with the 2g middle plastic cover. So all of the plates that bolt to my swap are from a 2g. 1g2g Timing Middle Cover, Rear (metal) MD127142 2g Timing Middle Cover, Front (metal) MD187283 2g Timing Lower Cover, Rear (metal) MD199941 For the plastic part of the covers, my method dictates that you use the 1g lower timing cover assembly. This lines up all of the bolt holes and makes it fit around the bottom of the front case where the oil pan is. If you modify the lower cover to fit with the middle 2g cover, you won't need to trim anything else. The upper timing cover you need may depend on which head and valve cover you're using. Lower Timing Cover Assembly MD141454 1g 6-bolt block MD193995 1g 7-bolt block 2g Middle Timing Cover Assembly MD191811 - 9401.1-9606.3 MD191807 - 9607.1-9912.9 Upper Timing Cover WITH Rubber Gaskets 1g - MD141457 6-bolt head 1g - MD188127 7-bolt head 2g - MD198031 This is a good place to transition into the rubber parts because the rubber pieces are very different for the 1g and 2g upper timing covers. If you don't want a rattling, buzzing, noisy valve cover sounding off with every vibration from your car, you should replace all of the rubber. It dry rots and turns hard. If you bought a complete 1g engine gasket set and you have both timing covers already, then you should have the 1g portion of these rubber gaskets included in your gasket set. If you've already got both generations of the timing covers like I do, and no good rubber gaskets, then order all of these parts and stop the rattles. However, if you bought any of the plastic timing cover parts new from the dealer, then those plastic parts come with the rubber gaskets included. You can eliminate them from your order. MD006665 1g* MD156770 1g* MD188122 2g MD188831 2g MD191502 2g * If you bought a complete 1g plastic lower timing cover, you don't need the 1g gaskets. Upper Timing Cover Gaskets by themselves... 1g - MD031235 & MD122058 6-bolt head 1g - MD188123 & MD188124 7-bolt head 2g - MD188122 Now for the last part. Fasteners. These are all of the upper, middle and lower timing cover bolts whether they bolt down metal or plastic parts. I've included their lengths and diameters so you can identify them.
